The Mid-Atlantic Regional Health Equity Council held an inaugural Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Summit on September 16, 2015 in partnership with Office of Minority Health Resource Center and Howard University. The meeting’s purpose was to discuss what can be done to strengthen the roles of HBCUs in the nation’s 50-year struggle for health equity. This was an opportunity for HBCUs in Region III to inform one another of their competencies and establish networks to enhance the movement of students from one program to another in pursuit of their academic goals. The summit also provided a foundation for attendees to explore collaborations in promoting the training of African Americans in the health professions and in advocating for improved African American health in the effort to eliminate disparities. Participating HBCUs included: Bowie State University; Coppin State University; Delaware State University; Hampton University; Howard University; Morgan State University; University of the District of Columbia; and University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
